wilma...one of my few lifelong friends...memories over the years...many many days spent at "the farm", taking a picnic lunch and riding horses through the fields, snacking on soda crackers spread with butter AND peanut butter, escaping the little sisters in the hay loft, sitting on the counters in the "farm" kitchen of the "big house", butchering so many of those tough old hens but the most fun was running around together, school relationships drama, the "MMM" club (what was that anyway??), sewing projects, shared school stress, growing up, sharing a year of bible school in the dorm, late night chats, struggles with futures, relationship hurts, doubts and fears, continuing to grow up, paths taking us different places, visits whenever possible, lots of laughing, mostly because wilma could always make me laugh, growing respect for her accomplishments and courage and independence, a bit jealous that she became a nurse and that was never to be my journey, thoughtful notes, a beautiful water-colour painted for my 50th birthday, and a hand written letter each christmas, faith struggles and conflicts, a growing comfort with who we both became, less of a need to please people, more confidence and strength, a peace in seeing God's hand in it all and that was enough...strength through her first illness, hopes for the future, tiredness, a "knowing", and the courageous choice to face physical death while acknowledging that this was not all there would be, humour and laughter, deeper chats and totally meaningless conversation, so much honour and respect for her character and faith in God, knowing that others were watching and it mattered how she lived out what she claimed to believe, joy in connecting, precious time...i will always be thankful for the friendship and presence of my friend wilma...she is missed...love to your entire family as we join with you soon to honour and remember who she was to so many. wilma, you were and are loved by so many!

Some of our greatest memories of Wilma are of enjoying working with her at James River Bible Camp and her babysitting the kids at Prairie Bible Institute. She was so fun to have around, a tremendous worker and we loved her dearly!! Our love and prayers are with the family.

Wilma was gentle woman with a feisty soul, who was content to be in the background but willing to stand up for what she believed in. Meekness and strength. A precious lady. My prayers for you, her family, as you grieve the loss of her while looking forward to seeing her again someday.
